What does Primary or Secondary source mean?

What is a Primary Research Article?

In a primary research article, author(s) present a new set of findings from original research after conducting their own experiment or study. 

Example: Maier, W., Lichtermann, D., Minges, J., Heun, R., & Hallmayer, J. (1993). The impact of gender and age at onset on the familial aggregation of schizophrenia. European Archives of Psychiatry and Clinical Neuroscience242(5), 279–285.

What is a Secondary Source Article?

A secondary source provides an analysis of other sources. No original data is collected. Secondary research will cite the original source of data used, such as government statistics or datasets.

Example: Garb, H. N. (2021). Race bias and gender bias in the diagnosis of psychological disorders. Clinical Psychology Review90.
